Let _me_ clarify.
Okay, I re-read what you wanted. The unwieldy does not apply to the core-
files themselves, but more to their pathnames, i.e. I could see us
creating files like
[or put the directory name somewhere else]
Personally, one of the things I like about 'ls' is that it columnizes
its output. Get just one of those in a directory and that goes out
the window. I'd just as soon not see this in a pathname.
I presume that the reason you wanted a directory name was to put it
in the core file name format somewhere. This is the discussion that
was being bandied about; if I've missed the point -again-, I certainly
apologise for the misunderstanding.
As far as process root, real root, and mortuary (cwd at time of death) go,
why not just extricate the dev/ino data from the vnode and leave it to the
Sun hardware is great stuff. It's too bad their software has taken
such a downturn.
